Data from: Facile fabrication of microfluidic surface-enhanced raman scattering devices via lift-up lithography

Yuanzi Wu, Ye Jiang, Xiaoshan Zheng, Shasha Jia, Zhi Zhu, Bin Ren & Hongwei Ma
We describe a facile and low-cost approach for flexible integration surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate in microfluidic chips. Briefly, a SERS substrate was fabricated by electrostatic assembly of gold nanoparticles, and shaped into designed patterns by the subsequent lift-up soft lithography. The SERS micropattern could be further integrated within microfluidic channels conveniently. The resulting microfluidic SERS chip allows one to ultrasensitively in-situ SERS monitor from the transparent glass window. With its advantages in simplicity, functionality,...

Data from: Herbivory enhances the resistance of mangrove forest to cordgrass invasion

Yihui Zhang, Hanyu Meng, Yi Wang & Qiang He
The biotic resistance hypothesis proposes that biotic interactions, such as competition and herbivory, resist the establishment and spread of non-native species. The relative and interactive role of competition and herbivory in resisting plant invasions, however, remains poorly understood. We investigated the interactive role of competition and herbivory (by the native rodent Rattus losea) in resisting Spartina alterniflora (cordgrass) invasions into mangrove forests. In southern China, although exotic cordgrass numerically dominates intertidal mudflats and open gaps...

Data from: Latitudinal pattern of flowering synchrony in an invasive wind-pollinated plant

Shiyun Qiu, Xiao Xu, Shuangshuang Liu, Wenwen Liu, Jing Liu, Ming Nie, Fuchen Shi, Yihui Zhang, Jacob Weiner & Bo Li
Flowering synchrony can play an important role in plants’ reproductive success, which is essential for the successful establishment and spread of invasive plants. Although flowering synchrony has been found to be closely related to climatic factors, the effects of variation in such factors along latitudinal gradients on flowering synchrony, and the role of flowering synchrony in the reproductive success of invading populations remain largely unexplored. In a two-year field study, we examined the latitudinal variation...

Data from: Effects of capsaicin-induced sensory denervation on early implant osseointegration in adult rats

Bo Huang, Jun Ye, Xiaohua Zeng & Ping Gong
The presence of nerve endings around the implant, but the interaction between the peripheral nervous system and the implant osseointegration is still unclear. The purpose of this study was to test the effects of selective sensory denervation on early implant osseointegration. Forty male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into group A and group B, and they were treated with capsaicin and normal saline, respectively. One week later, titanium implants were placed in the bilateral femur...

Data from: Ocean acidification increases the sensitivity of and variability in physiological responses of an intertidal limpet to thermal stress

Jie Wang, Bayden D. Russell, Meng-Wen Ding & Yun-Wei Dong
Understanding physiological responses of organisms to warming and ocean acidification is the first step towards predicting the potential population- and community-level ecological impacts of these stressors. Increasingly, physiological plasticity is being recognized as important for organisms to adapt to the changing microclimates. Here, we evaluate the importance of physiological plasticity for coping with ocean acidification and elevated temperature, and its variability among individuals, of the intertidal limpet Cellana toreuma from the same population in Xiamen....
